Wii Bowling 2024 RULES

2. A team consists of 4 to 6 players (all team members must be current SL residents and registered on the AALC roster).

To Compete for a Playoff Spot:

Teams must submit three scores to AALC’s League Commissioner by no later than August 1, 2023.  Games must have been played during July.

The top team in each region will advance to the regional playoffs. If there is a region that does not have a team entered, the overall highest scoring team after all regional teams have been selected will advance to the regional playoffs.

The top 4 teams from the regional playoffs will participate in the semi-finals. The top two teams from the semi-finals will advance to the State Championships.

 A photo of the television screen displaying the final score for the “league” games must be submitted to AALC along with your team’s scores.

Teams that qualify for playoffs must be available to bowl 4-6 additional weeks beyond the regular season.

Scoring

  • Each game is worth a maximum of 300 points. Additionally, spares and strikes are to be totaled and reported on the bowling score sheet.
  • When a tie occurs, the team with the highest number of total strikes will be considered the winner. If both teams have the same number of strikes, the total number of spares will then be considered.

Note: Teams may use either the “Resort” version or “Sport” version of Wii to bowl their qualifying games, but ONLY the sport version will be used to bowl during the State Championship in Springfield.
